Lets give you an simple example. while "i am sleeping", keep your eyes on my bike. and Do keep your eyes open while "i am sleeping". While loop check the work started first then it execute, and do while start the task and continue until the condition stopped. suppose, While loops start the work after the instruction start. but the do while loops start the work and finish until the instructed process end.

i understand it more now , thank you all :)

While loop and do while loop main difference are while loop is check condition based of boolean value its going execute such of codes.but in case of do while loop its going to execute once by any how either the value is true or false. I am not php but based of c++ lang I think It will be same hope its help
